Not a terribly inspiring post this one, so if sewing is not on your interest list, I would exit now 🙂
This past weekend was a flurry of activity for me, mainly involving driving Clare to various places (grrr, when is her big brother going to get his licence…please?), sewing and cooking. The cooking happened because I just paid a couple of large bills and neglected to go shopping on Friday (as is my usual routine). There was little left in the way of food in the house, so out came my Mum’s old Golden Wattle cookbook and 4 dozen gingernut biscuits later I was glad I took the time to restore it (it was falling apart). Absolutely scrummy they were, to the extent that they are all gone today. I also made my stock cake stall cake, the Oily, Vanilla Custard cake, which always goes down well and indeed, this one has continued the trend (I’ll post the recipe if you’re interested).
I also made this little ensemble, My third Vera Venus vintage bra and my second pair of Oh Lulu knickers. I really like this look and considering they cost $2.50 for a bra back, a bit of elastic and some time, I am very pleased. The fabrics are all remnants in my stash. I am considering going the handmade lingerie route permanently as this pair of patterns fulfils my needs in this department.
Meanwhile, it is time to think of the March Challenge on the Monthly Stitch. It involves choosing three patterns and putting it to the vote of the other subscribers of the blog to choose the one I make for March. My problem is whittling the list down to three. Far, far too many to choose from and here they are:
Any opinions peeps? I will whittle the collection down to three for posting on the Monthly Stitch in the next few days, any comments will be much appreciated, Ciao!
